Sisters can be challenging :)

Sunday, December 9, 2012

I've been working on this project where I'm scrapping old photos in an 8x8 layout.  The photos have been challenging to work with because they aren't photos that I would normally choose.  But they are photos that I have an emotional attachment too.  I've been using blog sites and sketches for most of these layouts since I find them "difficult" to work with.  I keep reminding myself that sometimes "done is better than perfect".  The layout below was inspired by a couple blogs. At Use Your Stuff Challenge #63 is to create a project using older pictures, using some of the amazing retro themed product lines out there, or just by using old-school stuff in your stash.  Perfect for my ongoing project with older photos!  And the October Afternoon "Make it Merry" line helped provide some retro vibe.  The great ladies at The Paper Mixing Bowl have provided a delicious"recipe" this month for a holiday themed layout.  It's called "Christmas Pudding".  How cute is that?

  6. You pulled the Paper Mixing Bowl elements together beautifully. The retro papers really seem to have done the trick for you with this photograph. I love the photo legend that you incorporated. That's a really clever idea!
